What’s the Latest?

Schools Training Page

“What’s the Latest?” is a big question, actually.  In the research database world, everything is dynamic and constantly changing and updating.  In 2015, ProQuest SIRS Discoverer was all new.  ProQuest CultureGrams also received new looks — twice during the year — once over the summer, and again last month in December.  Content is continually being updated as well.  Most recently, we moved our “offices” — online, that is.  You have a new place to log into your ProQuest K-12 resources, and the training team has a new place for you to go to join us for training.  Sounds like a great time to get to know your resources even better!

Contact the ProQuest Training and Consulting Team to learn all about what’s new and what’s so important about your ProQuest resources. You can contact us directly to arrange a free meeting or join us in one of our public webinars, as noted above. We’re happy to answer your questions and help you get a great start to the second half of this academic year!

Benefits of eLibrary and eLibrary Curriculum Edition

Research Topics eLibrary 2015Aside from the fact that ProQuest eLibrary and ProQuest eLibrary Curriculum Edition offer over 109 million documents, all in full-text, and 8 different media types, there are a number of other exceptional values associated with eLibrary. One of these is the growing and diverse collection of Research Topics pages. These pages are topical compilations of some of eLibrary’s “best of” content on major areas of study. You can find items for use in any research project from biographies to tablet computers, history to major social issues, or science to health. Research Topics even bring together key information and material found in eLibrary supporting Common Core ELA standards. There are currently over 10,000 of these unique pages in eLibrary, and growing.

Come and learn all about eLibrary’s Research Topics pages — or any other of our expansive ProQuest resources. You may request a privately arranged training with any member of our Training and Consulting Partners team. To get started, just email us at training@proquest.com . We’ll respond back to you and work to get everything arranged!

Ebooks and ProQuest Research Databases

ProQuest Ebook Connections2

Some combinations just make sense. Take for example the robust ProQuest platform which delivers ProQuest Research Library Prep and ProQuest Central K-12, giving access to thousands of full-text periodicals, scholarly journals, and trade publications in every area of the curriculum, and ProQuest’s ebrary Academic Complete, which delivers over 100,000 full volumes of primarily non-fiction ebook research content, also across all areas of the curriculum. When you’re using these two resources together, ProQuest will automatically connect them to save you time and effort. You get the best periodicals combined with the best books on your thoughtfully searched topics. It just makes sense.

We can show you more. Join the ProQuest Training and Consulting Partners in one of our free monthly webinars to learn how ProQuest can make success easier in student projects.
